For many hip-hop fans, it’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since Long Island’s De La Soul released their seminal 3 Feet High and Rising, showcasing the trio’s laid-back flow, eclectic samples and carefully crafted lyrics. Earlier this year, on Valentine’s Day, in celebration of 3 Feet High’s silver anniversary, the group gave away all of their music via free download as a love letter to their fans for years of loyalty. While they haven’t released any new music since 2012’s Plug 1 & Plug 2 Present… First Serve, a new album titled You’re Welcome reportedly is in the works. But for now, De La Soul are touring behind their landmark anniversary, which is reason enough to see them live.
